Students must maintain a "B" average (3.0) in order to continue in a graduate program. A student whose average falls below 3.0, who earns a grade lower than a "C," or who earns more than two grades of "C" or "C+," will be reviewed by the Graduate Academic Affairs Committee, which may dismiss the student or determine the conditions under which the student may continue in the program. No more than six credits of course work in the "C" range can be applied toward the master's degree. A student who has not attained a grade-point average of 3.0 or better at the end of his or her program of study will not graduate.
A student who receives a grade of a "C-" or lower in a course must repeat the course in order to graduate from the graduate program. Students may repeat a course only one time. Students may also choose to repeat a course one time to improve their cumulative GPA. The newly earned grade will replace the original grade in the calculation of a student’s cumulative grade-point average; however, the former grade is retained as originally recorded in the student’s transcript. Students cannot repeat a course that has been removed from the curriculum unless another course has been designated as an approved alternative for the deleted course.
Students may apply for waiver of a graduate level course if they have undergraduate courses that correspond to the following requirements:
Students must present a transcript and syllabus for each class
that they are providing as part of their request for a waiver. This
information must be submitted to the Dean of the College of Business for
review and approval.
If the waiver of a course is approved, then the student must take another graduate level course in place of the course for which they obtained the waiver.
